Is it normal for a 58cm hat form to actually be 58.4cm around?

hi, I’m new here and would really appreciate some advice. I bought my first wooden hat form. I order it in size 58cm. When i got it it was actually 58.4 cm. The person I bought it from says that’s normal for it to be not exactly 58cm. Is this true? These expensive wooden forms are not true to size? Should i have ordered. 57cm, and built it up? now it’s too big for the hats i wanted to work on. he said I could return it, but he won’t replace it. Is it the same everywhere, that they are not made…See More

"you are most welcome. It is good to support local where one can, but only if the service is good!  Should you purchase from reputable, professional block makers in the future (as some named) you will be very pleasantly surprised. cheers Darryll"

"Thanks Darryll, thats good to know. I so appreciate your taking the time to reply. And i was very much hoping what you said is the case with good block makers. Seems the block maker I bought from is a bit of a hack, to try and make me believe it is…"

"I am very sorry you have experienced an issue with your first block, one that it has happened, and two that the back up customer service doesn't seem to be what you expected. As a professional block maker i would like to offer some comments.…"

"Thanks for the info! It helps a lot. So relieved to know that it is indeed possible to purchase an exact sized block. At least now I’ll know in future to ask before I order. "

"Hi , I honestly think it depends who you buy from.   A professional hat block maker such as Easy Hat Blocks, Hat Block Australia and Boon&Lane would send a block to the exact measurements you need.  That's been my experience.…"
